Two charged with murder-for-hire plot in OKC | Crime
OKLAHOMA CITY – New information is being released on a bizarre murder for hire plot in Oklahoma City.
Two men have now been arrested and charged for the crime.
The victim died of multiple stab wounds inside her southwest Oklahoma City home.
Prosecutors now claim the victim’s ex boyfriend hired someone to rob and kill the 57-year-old nurse.
Last week police arrested 18-year-old Bryson Baker for murder.
Just days later, officers arrested Harvey Wilson for conspiring with Baker to commit the murder.
“I just can’t believe it because they’re real quiet,” neighbor Joyce Cutter said. “I guess something happens and something just clicks.”
In early December Shelia Stanley died of multiple stab wounds inside her home.
No signs of forced entry were ever found.
Court records state Wilson told others, “He wanted to have Stanley injected with high doses of ice,” in other words, meth, and killed.
The affidavit states, “The plan was for Wilson to be in Lawton and on camera during the time frame of the murder” as an alibi.
“It just doesn’t seem like something that happens everyday,” Cutter said. “You see it in the movies but not in real life.”
Prosecutors claim, after Bakers arrest, the teen confessed that Wilson, “Wanted the victim’s safe to get back items of jewelry he had purchased Stanley and to get cash he had given her.”
Baker said, “He was to be paid in the form of a car that belonged to Wilson but needed to be repaired.”
We went to Wilson’s home but the woman there told us to get off the property.
Just minutes later, while getting pictures of the home from across the street, that woman called police and tried unsuccessfully to force us to leave.
Both suspects remain behind bars in the Cleveland County jail.
